I took a different approach from the usual. I brought a flash with me and a couple of pocketwizards. I don't get to use this stuff enough because I usually shoot sports and do not like the effect of flash with sports. This was my chance to experience some remote flash techniques. Here is a shot with the flash to my left about 15 feet away pointed towards the three tombstones. The photo has some post-processing (pp) in photoshop. I darkened up the photo and also desaturated the colors dramatically. I felt this gave it more of a cemetery gloomy look.
The rest of the photos I also desaturated, but I darkened quite a bit with the brightness and multiply tools. I also used some dodge and burn to enhance some of the tombstones.
The tombstone below is the first burial in Mt. Hope Cemetery.
I liked the dark clouds mixed with a slight blue sky behind this statue.
Another great sky mixed with a broken cross tombstone. Many of the tombstones are broken in Mt. Hope.
Some more from Mt. Hope are here Tombstones
